JOHN LAWSON Listening to his timeless music, you find yourself swept away to olive groves bathed in Greek sunshine.
That Demis Roussos should come to the Theatre Royal, Norwich, on a warm spring evening was entirely appropriate.
Listening to his timeless music, you find yourself swept away to olive groves bathed in Greek sunshine.
More than 25 years after his first solo hit in the UK and upwards of a decade since his last appearance on these shores, he proved his voice had lost none of its shimmer and a good-sized audience welcomed him back.
The Roussos Phenomenon, as it was once known, may have lost its mystique but the hits – Forever and Ever, Lovely Lady of Arcadia and My Friend the Wind among others – still bring a smile.
The music sweeps across Europe for its influences but the Mediterranean is never far away, his falsetto lapping into the heart like its own gentle waves.
